Well, Summerlin, NV to be exact. We are thrilled to announce that West Elm Summerlin is carrying Pantry as part of their LOCAL program. Check out the press release below…


BROOKLYN, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–West Elm announced today the opening of its third Nevada store in Downtown Summerlin®, bringing approximately 30 jobs to the master-planned community. The 11,032 square-foot retail location will open on Thursday, October 6 at 10 a.m. As part of West Elm’s LOCAL program, eight Nevada-based makers and designers will sell their products with the store’s holiday assortment of modern furnishings and décor. A complimentary design lab offering West Elm’s Style + Services will support customers in their journey to express their personal style at home. The store also includes Nevada-based artist Zac Bryson of Wildwood Supply Co.’s custom-designed cash wrap that uses salvaged wood geometrically arranged to evoke the area’s desert landscape.

“Summerlin by design is all about community, and we are thrilled to enter a market where we can be a creative hub to neighbors and visitors alike”

“Summerlin by design is all about community, and we are thrilled to enter a market where we can be a creative hub to neighbors and visitors alike,” said West Elm president Jim Brett. “And as we continue to grow in Nevada, we are committed to making a positive impact, from supporting local artisans to expanding the job market.”

To celebrate the opening, West Elm partnered with Las Vegas-based artist Anna See to design a limited edition tote bag that will be presented to the first 300 shoppers with a $50 minimum purchase on opening day. Additional store opening activities will include a sweepstakes* offering local customers a chance to win a $2,000 gift card and an invitation to a private pre-opening celebration on Wednesday, October 5 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. A portion of the pre-opening celebration proceeds will benefit the Nevada SPCA, a local nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter encouraging people to be the best possible guardians for the animal companions in their care.

Last Wednesday, West Elm opened the doors to their Reno location and Pantry was honored to not only take part in the festivities but to occupy a little shelf space. The new store, just above Pantry, is housed in the historic downtown Reno post office and boy, did they turn this space into something magical. Visit the following links for coverage and pop over to West Elm’s website to bring their lovely designs into your home. xo Michelle
